VOL. 1/ISSUE 52 FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 2013 35 cents Rolling to workBrad Highwood rolls to work, then rolls at work. The Port St. Lucie resident is one of about 42,000 veterans diagnosed with spinal-cord injuries or diseases. He uses a wheelchair to get around. The 52-year-old works as a cashier at the Gulfstream Goodwill Industries Palm City store. It was a downward employment step for Highwood, but hes lucky to have a job at all. The Paralyzed Veterans of America, PVA, estimates that unemployment among veterans with catastrophic disabilities who can and want to work is 65 to 85 percent. The Department of Veterans Affairs de Patrick McCallisterFOR VETERAN VOICEpatrick.mccallister@yahoo.com St. Lucie veterans continue calls to keep former services coordinatorSt. Lucie veterans havent given up on Donna Carlsen. The county terminated the former veteran services coordinator on Aug. 7. At a recent St. Lucie County Commission meeting, Air Force veteran Roy Brewer gave commissioners a stinging what for over the termination. Dozens of veterans were on hand to reinforce his message. Shes a veterans veteran, Brewer said in a phone interview after the meeting. She was in (Operation Restore Hope), and a lot of people dont know that. Restore Hope, Somalia, was a humanitarian mission from 1992 to 1994. Its best remembered for the Battle of Mogadishu, which is also called Black Hawk Down. Brewer said after talking to county staff and others about the termination, hes convinced tics, not wrongdoing.

Veteran Voice is a weekly publication designed to provide information to and about veterans to veterans and to the broader community. Veterans are an integral part of their Florida communities, which currently have individual organizations of their own, such as the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the American Legion, the Vietnam Veterans of America and many other groups with a narrow focus, but no convenient way to connect to a wider population of veterans and to the community in general within a limited geographic area, their community. The mission of Veteran Voice is to publish a weekly source of information that will provide, in one place, a listing of resources available to veterans, articles about changes in policies or organizations affecting veterans and events of interest to veterans as well as articles about veterans of interest to the general public. Veteran Voice LLC is organized as a partnership of experienced newspaper executives with an interest in veterans and in the communities of Florida veterans and friends. Veteran Voice is a start-up intended to address a perceived lack of information readily available to veterans on programs and policies affecting them and objective reporting of veteran affairs to the public. To our knowledge, and based on comments from lead ers of local veterans organizations, there was no media or website currently meeting this need until the launch of Veteran Voice. We hope you agree, and will support this publica tion with your subscription. Without subscriptions there will be a limited number of people we can help, without which this mission will not be realized. As part of our commitment to supporting local veteran communities, readers and subscribers.

VETERAN VOICE THE VOICE OF EXPERIENCE NOVEMBER 1, 2013 3 It was an injustice that should not have taken place, he said. Those of us who have been her clients know shes always gone above and beyond the call of duty. Brewer is a member of the Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 566, Port St. Lucie, and is its representative to the United Veterans of St. Lucie County. United Veterans is a collaborative not-for-profit organization formed by numerous veterans groups in St. Lucie County. Among other things, it raises money to help the countys Carlsen started as a county vetertwo years after injuries forced her to discharge from the Army. In a telephone interview, she said the county alleged insubordination and terminated her. Previously, Erik Gill, St. Lucies public inforwas involuntarily terminated. Carlsen said county staff asked her to sign an agreement accepting a pay cut. She consulted with Jeffrey Bumb, area vice president of the County Veterans Service Oftion of Florida. Carlsen said he recommended not signing it, so she didnt. Bumb, in a telephone interview, politely declined to comment about the incident. In a telephone interview after the commission meeting, which she didnt attend, Carlsen said her termination was a culmination of events that started in 2012 when she reported that former executive assistant Eileen Hagerhorst was inappropriately handling funds United Veterans donated to the county veteran crises, such as unpaid utilities. Im the one who caught her stealing, Carlsen said. Had that never happened, Id never gotten Hagerhorst resigned from her job and was later arrested and charged with third-degree grand theft. She plead no contest in May, and was ordered to serve probation and community service. Tod Mowery, county chairman, told Brewer at the meeting that the commission couldnt get involved in personnel issues. In a previous Veteran Voice interview, he said the county commission is legally constrained from inserting itself into personnel decisions. Only two county workers serve at the will of the commission the county administrator, Faye Outlaw, and the county attorney. At the meeting, Mowery asked Outlaw to respond to Brewer. It is not appropriate to go into details about any personnel issues, she said. However, Outlaw said that the county has a progressive disciplinary process, meaning that theres an escalation of corrective and punitive steps before termination. Outlaw said only six employees whove undergone the process have been terminated in the last six years. In the phone interview after the meeting, Brewer said many veterans were said many feel that Outlaw and commissioners are just not listening. I hate to see it become an election issue, but the veterans in the area, there are between approximately 40,000 and 43,000 in St. Lucie County and thats a pretty strong voice. They could they could, with double underline under could raise this issue during an election, he said. Carlsen said that the county challenged her application for unbut that the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity found in her favor. The county, she said, has appealed that decision. Carlsen said if given the chance to resume her job at veteran services, she would. Tomorrow, she said. Tomorrow. Carlsen is commander of the Disabled American Veterans Post 113, Port St. Lucie.

VETERAN VOICE THE VOICE OF EXPERIENCE NOVEMBER 1, 2013 5 having an injury or disease that requires personal or mechanical assistance to leave home, such as using a wheelchair. Highwood said he sought a job for a long time before landing one. It took about four years, he said. Ive got a lot of manage ment experience. We put in (re sumes) everywhere, and nobody was interested. During the National Veterans Wheelchair Games, July, the PVA opened its seventh Paving Access for Veterans Employment Operation PAVE regional games were. Sherman Gillums Jr., associate executive director itation for those with catastrophic injuries or diseases has routine high unemployment among people with disabilities. When you go through a course of rehabilitation, the end goal is not employment, he said. It is about going home. He added, Paralyzed Veterans of America looks at employment as a goal for all veterans with dis abilities. Highwood was diagnosed with transverse myelitis in 2000. Those with the spinal-cord dis ease often must use wheelchairs, but not always. Its possible his time in the 1970s as a scout sniper with the 101st Airborne contributed to the extent of the condition. Ive got several herniated disks, Highwood said. 16 percent of people with spi nal-cord injuries and diseases are veterans. Veterans make up about 7 percent of the population. Because of that unusually high rate of spinal-cord problems among veterans, some spinal-cord diseases such as multiple sclerosis are presumptive ser vice-related conditions. That is if a veteran shows symptoms of MS while in or within a certain period of time after discharging from the military, the VA presumes its due to service. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, ALS, is always pre sumed to be a service-connected condition for any veteran with 90 days or more in the military. Highwood was managing a plumbing company when transverse myelitis struck him. His employer was accommodating, so Highwood continued working for a couple years after the diagnosis. But Highwood started los ing his ability to hear telephone conversations a necessity for that job. I dropped out, because of the hearing, he said. was management work that didnt require much telephone time. He got help with the job hunt ing from the Florida Division of Vocational Rehabilitation. He was startled by employers responses, or lack of them. I was a manager at Sams Club, he said. I ran a large plumbing company. Gillums, who is a wheelchair user due to a spinal-cord injury, said the PVA has heard many similar stories from veterans with disabilities. The organization was one of the leading proponents for the Americans with Disabilities Act, which requires employers to consider applicants with disabil ities if those disabilities dont affect their abilities to do core functions of jobs they apply for. Gillums said many companies are eager to comply with the law, and to support veterans with disabili ties, but often dont know how to go about it. We reach out to employers who express an interest in hiring vet erans with disabilities, but have no idea how to get started, he said. Gillums said about 600 employ ers have joined the Operation PAVE network. Some are small employers with a few positions. Others are multinational com panies. He said Operation PAVE goes beyond helping wheelchair-using veterans. We serve any veteran with a severe obstacle to employment, he said. Severe obstacles include serious post-traumatic stress disorder, felony convictions, and disabil ities such as hearing or vision loss, Gillums said. Additionally, he said Operation PAVE helps caregivers to veterans with cata ment. Highwood started working at Goodwill in January. He helped open the Palm City store. He said its important for veterans and others with disabilities to seek and have the chance for employment. You can sit and dwell on what you used to be able to do, or focus on what you can still do, he said. Employers and job seekers who Operation PAVE can visit operationpave.org, or call Shelly Edwards, employment network coordinator, at (570) 789-7283.

She is directing the play, written by local playwright Gale Baker, from and radiation for a recurrence of breast cancer. Her hair is back, her health is good and shes ready to roll. During the past year, she had a lot of time to think. It was a year of staying home and soul-searching and praying, she said. I thought about a lot of things. You cant put off all the things you want to do. I was approached to do this and I thought, Why not?

VETERAN VOICE THE VOICE OF EXPERIENCE NOVEMBER 1, 2013 9 Mazzella has appeared in some 30 shows since she and husband Chris, a retired FBI agent, moved to Stuart. She is friends with lo cal playwright Gale Baker and Baker brought the play to her. It had previously been pro duced in California with a professional cast, but this marks its Florida premiere. Its perfect for me, Mazzella said. Its set in 1944-1950 and I could relate to my mother during that time. Its set in a Southern beau ty shop and is the story of a local beautician who goes off to war as an Army nurse and what happens when she returns. Shes going because her guy was gouge, but he doesnt make the draft and shes going anyway and leaving him behind. Mazzella is at the helm, but she does have help. Her husband Chris is the producer. Hes working his little buns off, she said. Nov. 7 is Friends and Family Night, the last dress rehearsal. Weve dedicated it to veter tatives from each of the organizations. Were calling it Helping Our Community Night. Chris Mazzella is also a singer and he will be off stage as the radio announcer during the show. Jeanette Mazzella noted that many of the actors are new to the Barn. When I saw them, I thought, I dont know character perfectly. Im very proud of my cast. I love these people. Theyre bringing this show to life. The cast includes Amanda Lynn Photen hauer as beauty operator Betty Lou; Victoria Hadel, a Palm City resident, as Jolene; Liz Milner, also of Palm City, as Lois, a salon customer; Greta Goldstein, a veteran actress, as customer Maude; Joe Pierson, recently dis charged from the Navy, as Betty Lous young man; and Chris Mazzella, a veteran actor and singer, as the radio announcer, whose voice is all we hear. The stage manager is Kathleen Weaver. In keeping with the patriotic theme of the play, the director plans to have posters from the era around the theater. The ushers will wear red, white and blue sashes. Glenn Miller tunes play in the background and the cast even does a sort of take on Dont Sit Under the Apple Tree. This show is a challenge, Mazzella said. I am delighted because of the era. I think the audience is really going to love it.
